    Is there a reason you can't get rid of the slingshot/powered up version? You can put it in the cupboard so it's not in inventory (I guess you can put it in a chest too, I haven't tried that tho), but you can't sell it and you can't trash it...I know some people really like the slingshot but I don't give a rip. Maybe I can give it to Vincent since kids his age would love that sort of gift?

      I'd assume it's probably because they're items you can only get once. Better to make sure someone who wanted to use them didn't accidentally throw them out and be unable to replace them.

      Though seeing as people were talking about slimes on the last page, I have to ask- do the ones from the Skull Cavern have any official name, like how the blue slimes are called Frost Jellies? I'm kind of curious.

        The wiki lists Purple Slimes as 'Sludges', but also includes Red Slimes in that as well. I have no idea where the name came from-- is it actually in the game code somewhere or is that just a fan decision?

          Ah, all right, thanks! I suppose with the purple, there's no real way of knowing, but I'm inclined to say that 'Sludge' is at least official for the red slimes. I'm not sure if you can get a quest to slay some of them, but I'm inclined to say that there would be.

            If it were up to me, I'd give every color a distinct name! We already have Jellies (blue) and sludges (red); I'd call purples oozes, black slimes gunks, and yellow slimes glops. Green slimes can stay as 'green slime', because, let's face it, everybody needs a little green slime now and again. Giant slimes (which are usually just the purple ones seen in Skull Caverns-- though I have seen them in the Mines in other colors, on rare occasions-- would be blobs, of course!

              On the subject of discarding the slingshots, if you really want to... I haven't done it, but it should work. Put down a chest somewhere you know that villagers walk and put the slingshots into it. Then just give it time and a villager will destroy it.

              EDIT: I understand that also works if you've used cheats to get upgraded tools and want to discard the old ones.

                  Getting seeds from Pierre Tuesday, Caroline shows up so I talk to her. She wonders if she should wear something special for the aerobic get together. Geez Caroline, I wasn't aware you liked women that way...

                  Something I've noticed off and on is that CA REALLY put a lot of effort into the dialogue. After the kids comment on the sewer, I stopped by Marnie's about something and figured I'd talk to Jas since she was there. Her comment was "Ew, it stinks" and it took me a minute to realize she was referring to the sewer...it's interesting that CA added one-off bits of dialogue like that!

                      So I decided to update the Jar/Keg list I posted earlier that was very out of date. This is updated for SDV v1.2 with the prices taken off the wiki today. I tried to keep the formatting and colours the same as the original. Some items (Hops) took a HUGE hit since that last list was made.
                      Here it is for anyone who wants it...

                      Jar-Keg List - Updated for SDV v1.2.jpg

                      I can also provide the excel version of it if anyone wants.
                      Hope it helps!

                      Edit: I also moved the Hot Peppers from the Fruit section, which hadn't made any sense to me. It's now down in the Veggy section.
                      Edit2 - I forgot to mention... I didn't create the original list, and I don't know who did, but credit to whoever it was! It's been extremely valuable to me, which is why I put in the effort to update it, and probably will again if there are changes when the new update drops.

                        Peppers are fruits though, just like tomatos.

                          I wish I hadn't been forced to get involved in that argument... it was such an inner emotional turmoil... I sat there for 5 minutes not sure which one to select as I can argue both!

                            I can't in good faith literally gift these items in game (stupid lack if unique IDs), but in my husband Shane's room, I keep a chest of presents for him, including Hot Pepper Jelly and an iridium-quality Hot Pepper Wine.

                            I rather wish I could taste the latter irl, lol.

                            Peppers really are fruits though, and with jelly and wine options, it seems the game recognizes them as such (more so than tomatoes).

                              There's a spot during the SV fair where you can go sneak out and visit the community center, among other things. Just wondering if there is any reason to sneak out and explore the area that should be fenced off, or is it just a glitch-spot and while you can go slip out and see areas that technically are blocked off, is there any reason to?? Already know you can't access the community center, so...

                                Usually I go straight to using sprinklers as much as possible, so only recently on a farm where I'm watering 200 plots by watering can have I noticed that the bubbles that appear with each level of operation matching the color of the corresponding upgrade: yellow bubbles for three plots, light blue for five, gold for nine, and finally purple bubbles for eighteen plots.
